DEA Recordkeeping Violations in Atlanta, Georgia
Each practitioner in and around Atlanta must maintain inventories and records of controlled substances listed in Schedules I and II. These inventories and records must be maintained so that they are readily retrievable as business records.
The Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) is a part of the federal government tasked with investigating and monitoring all drug trafficking and drug crimes in the United States.

How long does the DEA keep records?
The DEA requires that a new inventory is maintained at least every two years. This inventory should include whether it was taken at the beginning or close of business, the names of the controlled substances and their finished forms, the number of dosage units, the number of commercial containers, and information regarding the disposing of the controlled substances. To be DEA compliant, the controlled substances registrant or licensee is compliant with the Controlled Substance Act. Failure to be such will result in civil or criminal penalties.
What is a DEA Audit?
The DEA audits are fairly common and can be issued for many reasons. Inspections generally happen every three years or so. The DEA doesn’t need a warrant for a compliance investigation unless they teamed up with the FBI for a criminal investigation. If this is the case, then a search warrant must be drafted to carry out a search.
